PPT Vision adds JAI cameras to enhance M-Series embedded machine-vision line

Industrial machine-vision camera manufacturers JAI (San Jose, CA, USA) and PPT Vision (Bloomington, MN, USA) have announced that JAI's CM-140GE-UV ultraviolet (UV) camera and CM-030GE-RH remote-head camera models will be incorporated into PPT's M-Series embedded machine-vision system lineup.

Industrial machine-vision camera manufacturers JAI (San Jose, CA, USA) and PPT Vision (Bloomington, MN, USA) have announced that JAI's CM-140GE-UV ultraviolet (UV) camera and CM-030GE-RH remote-head camera models will be incorporated into PPT's M-Series embedded machine-vision system lineup. Other JAI cameras may be added at a later date.


The 1.4-Mpixel (1392 x 1040 pixels), 16-frame/s CM-140GE-UV utilizes the shorter wavelengths of UV light to capture fine surface details or to image items that radiate light below the visible spectrum, which can support semiconductor inspection, biomedical analysis, and other sophisticated applications.

The integration of the JAI UV camera into the M-Series family enables customers to leverage the power of an industrial-grade UV camera with an embedded vision system. The camera's standard GigE Vision interface can be connected to the M-Series processing unit with up to 100 m of standard Ethernet cabling.

The CM-030GE-RH camera features a 17-mm-diameter, 46-mm-long remote imaging head connected to the main camera body by a flexible 2-m cable, and is designed for applications involving limited space and/or high-speed repetitive motion, such as pick-and-place machines, pipe inspection, or "industrial endoscopy" tasks. Pixel resolution of the remote head camera is 656 x 494, with a rate of 120 frames/s and a standard GigE Vision digital interface.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
